College Commitment Day

ACCESS College Commitment Day


ACCESS has participated in College Commitment Day since the national movement began in 2016! Today ACCESS College Commitment Day is a highly anticipated community event. This celebration commemorates an exciting time of life for our local students – college acceptance and the filing of their FAFSA form for financial aid!

To date, the event has hosted over 9,000 students from 33 local high schools, as well as, parents, high school and college faculty, and community leaders. College Commitment Day is a high-energy, school-spirited celebration for high school seniors. The event is an unforgettable tribute to the educational achievements of local students with the help of our master of ceremonies, local radio personality, Shaggy from Z104’s Z Morning Zoo.

Additionally, local news and talk show airings make it possible for the entire community to join in the celebration and be inspired by ACCESS student leaders as they declare their commitment to higher education.

This year, College Commitment Day will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia.
